jersey governor select a council and move towards the issue of subpoenas, getting christie's people in the chair and getting them under oath is the main issue. what the investigators need to ask is why every single member of the christie team without exception thought it was in the governor's interest to jam shut the commuter traffic lanes to new york, to render a whole community freeze fried for four days while his gang filled glee like they were high schoolers pulling off a prank on the school principal. nobody in the crew said a word against the caper, not a one. even when faced with resistance they pounded full speed eahead. they proceeded enthusiastically with their plan to punish the people of ft lee. now the governor says he will support an inquiry if he finds it appropriate. does this mean he reserves judgment and the right to claim executive privilege should the new jersey assembly plan to hear from the chief of staff and counsel charles mckenna or would asking them be inappropriate by the governor's decree? we will see. i am looking for the first time the governor puts up

publicly released in the chris christie bridge scandal in new jersey, not only to chris christie appointees and chris christie staffers and the people who we know seem to have taken part in shutting down the lanes of that bridge as some sort of act of political retaliation last september, not just to those people, but a subpoena went out today to the governor's office itself. and to governor chris christie's campaign for re-election. we were told yesterday that there would be roughly three entities, three organizations who were getting subpoenas alongside a long list of individuals. turns out it is two entities. it's the governor's re-election campaign and the governor's office. which means that as sprawling as this scandal and this investigation have become, they are much more tightly focused than we knew on the governor himself and his immediate staff. this is not a far-flung investigation into how politics is done in new jersey, which is some of the way that it's been covered in the national press. no. at least so far, from what we can tell about the scope of the investigation, this is a

[ applause ] nevertheless, christie was greeted with a standing ovation last night. after discussing the scandal, he steered around the roadblock. the headlines in new jersey today didn't oblige. "what aren't you seeing," his calls for reform to crime control, taxes, and education. while a new quinnipiac poll this morning shows his approval dinged up, still above that all-important 50% mark, but down almost 20 percentage points from his all-time high, which was around this time last year. >> the blood's in the water, the knives are out, all those statements. certainly, it's tough anywhere in politics. in new jersey, i'd say, it's really tough. >> and picking up speed, the state

been released, christie will not be talking about bridgegate or the controversy over allegations of giving hurricane aid to the city of hoboken was tied to support for a development project. instead, he'll speak to things that have proven successful to him in the past, the number one, christie as the alternative to washington, "we cannot fall victim to the attitude of washington, d.c., the attitude that says i am always right and you are always wrong." theme two, christie as the solo act, not afraid to go it alone. here's that quote, "the people of this state know that the only way forward is if we are all willing to take on what is politically unpopular." today's inauguration coming one day after christie's lieutenant governor denied accusations she tried to hold sandy relief hostage from the city of hoboken, but the democratic mayor of that city stuck by her story last night in a new interview. >> when you look at the documents, you look at the letters that i've written, you can see it wasn't illogical at all, it's actually a progression, you know, leading up to something where
you new exclusive and startling information about top officials in chris christie oost administration. it attempts to link the chris ty administration to sandy funds. the project which happens to directly involve the law firm of the port authority chairman. that's a lot to absorb and we're going to take you through all of it in just a minute. we're going to hear directly from the mayor who says she was on the receiving end of this pressure campaign. she's been refusing media" all week but she's here this mompg to tell her story and it's a story you have not seen anywhere in the press before right now. there are a lot of documents, a lot of names, a lot of complicated but necessary context. please, i'm going to ask you, bear with us. we're going to take our time here and do our best to give you the clearest and accurate picture of what we know. and the best place to start this story then is probably five years ago. it was a famous day in new jersey politics. the day you may even remember even if you don't live in new jersey. but it's the day that in many
special committees investigating the chris christie bridge scandal in the new jersey legislature has issued 20 differe subpoenas as part of their investigation. we expected we might hear today who exactly got those subpoenas but it now looks like it's going to break either overnight tonight or early tomorrow. in terms of when we find out the names. and then what? now it's time for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. >>> the new jersey legislature started issuing subpoenas today and chris christie hired himself a team of lawyers today. >> we start with the investigation of chris christie. >> three separate investigations going on. >> governor chris christie's administration will be getting temperature subpoenas. >> two new committees to be granted subpoena power. >> raising concerns about the cost. >> john wisniewski has done a great job. >> it's more ambitious than we were expecting. >> the administration has now hired a legal team. >> the governor announced his legal team. >> to look into whether any wrongdoing happened internally. as for the governor --
project in hoboken that was important to the chris christie administration, after she made those allegations this weekend, today, the christie administration responded to the hoboken mayor by denying the mayor's allegations, by saying that hoboken was never shortchanged in its sandy relief funds for any reason. and, besides, according to the office of governor chris christie, quote, hoboken was just not one of the state's hardest hit communities. that's part of the pushback from the christie administration against these explosive new allegations from the hoboken mayor that were first exposed here on msnbc on saturday morning by steve kornacki. part of their reporting is that hoboken just didn't need that much help. mr. kornacki reported new claims on saturday morning, from hoboken mayor, dawn zimmer, that during one week in may, this past may, right after the mayor had complained to governor christie office that hoboken was not receiving enough help after sandy, the mayor says within days of her making that complaint in writing to the governor, two separate members of the christi
